Luxurious home one block from ocean with casita, WiFi, & gorgeous outdoor space

The only thing better than the amazing location at this charming home is the spectacular outdoor space - you may be one block from Sunset Cliffs, but step into your back yard and you won’t want to leave. Two sets of sliding glass doors - one in the living room and one in the main bedroom suite - offer outdoor access.

A broad brick patio holds the first of several seating areas, this one gathered around a wood-burning fireplace. Just to your left is more seating and a private hot tub, and down a few steps is the second patio, holding a dining table for six and a covered outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, range top, fridge, and farmhouse sink. Barstools at the concrete counter offer the perfect place for little helpers to perch. There’s an outdoor shower as well, perfect for rinsing off the sand after a day at the beach.

Finally, for those who may be looking for a bit more privacy, the backyard holds a charming studio casita with a separate entrance, featuring air conditioning, a queen bed, a coffee station, and a bathroom.

When you must go inside, luxurious touches continue in the bright, open space. Two living rooms, one with a gas fireplace and a large sectional, are perfect for family or group get-together time. The gleaming, spacious kitchen offers acres of granite countertops and a full suite of stainless steel appliances. At mealtime, if you’re not dining alfresco, a dining table for four and barstools for three offer mealtime options. At bedtime, three comfortable choices await in the main house. If you head out to explore, Mission Beach, Ocean Beach, Sunset Cliffs, and Cabrillo National Monument are all an easy drive away.

What a lovely home. My family and I stayed at this home for an extended weekend this May and being San Diego natives, we were quite impressed with this house. The house is extremely well stocked, decorated beautifully, with more than the average rental. We made big dinners every night and the house has every size pan you could ever need, including casserole dishes, bowels, pans, etc, and all the appliances were very nice. There was not a coffee pot, only a Keurig, so we actually bought a small coffee pot at Target to use for the weekend. There was ample space for everyone throughout the house, including the casita in the back. The back yard is well manicured and the flow of the house is very conducive to family time. There’s a wood burning fire place in the back, as well as a pizza oven and full outdoor kitchen. The location is absolutely wonderful, only a few blocks to the cliffs and a little over a mile to the actual sand beach. Although, there are a few local known beaches beneath the cliffs if you don’t mind a little effort. There are two very close liquor stores, within a couple blocks, and the neighborhood is very quiet. Vacasa was responsive to any questions, so that was appreciated however we wish more care was taken to accommodate a two hour earlier check-in. We had a small baby who hadn’t napped during our long day of travel and although we had arrived to the house two hours early, we were not allowed an early check in. We received general responses from Vacasa that if an earlier check in was available, we would be notified. This, we had to sit outside the house until 4pm but no one was there cleaning it or doing any work so we were disappointed with their management of our request. Not knowing the status of the house and continuing to give auto-responses seems like a lazy way of doing business. The only MAJOR issue we had was that there are actually other people LIVING at the house in the room/unit above the casita. We were quite surprised to have two women walking around in the drive way and with clear view of the backyard. It was never once mentioned in the description and no one bothered to inform us at any point. This was extremely disappointing and dampened how “at home” we could be knowing strangers had a clear view of the backyard and into the living room. We found that to be a very big lapse in communication and something that should have been fully conveyed to potential renters.
Manager response:
Hi, Morgan! We're so glad you stayed with us and apologize if you were unaware of the long-term tenant upstairs. This unit is separate from the main house and does not share any common areas with the Vacasa rental. Thank you!

The house was updated and contained every essential you could possibly need. Most beautiful house I ever stayed at from house to yard. I was so comfortable and relaxed . Every day I noticed something else about the house so unique . My family enjoyed their stay and were so happy I found a beautiful home in a lovely settings . Every nigh we could we walked down to the cliffs for a beautiful sunset.
